Apprentice's Notes

Catalysts are one of the 5 possible weapons that characters can use in Genshin Impact. Due to their magical nature, all Normal and Charged attacks performed with a Catalyst are considered elemental damage. The element of the damage depends on the wielder's natural element/vision.

Normal Attacks

A Catalyst user's normal attacks can be a single-target or AoE attack, depending on the character. Every attack applies the attacker's element to the target.

Charged Attacks

Catalyst users' charged attacks typically consume a certain amount of stamina, before unleashing a more powerful AoE attack centered around the target.
